Volume 8 describes the mechanical behavior of metals, composites, ceramics, and polymers and how it translates to measurable properties that can be used in product design and manufacturing. It explains how to acquire and analyze property data from a wide range of tests, including tension, compression, bend, and shear tests, micro and macro-scale hardness tests, and tests for friction and wear. It also describes creep and stress-relaxation testing, impact and fracture toughness testing, fatigue testing, and high strain rate testing. The volume addresses equipment, fixturing, and data evaluation, and presents strategies for testing gears, bearings, fasteners, pressure vessels and piping, welds, and adhesive-bonded joints.
